Reports published by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration estimate that there are 61,000 people over the age of 12 who are dependent or abuse illicit drugs or alcohol in South Dakota. Though Rapid City is nowhere near epidemic levels, drug testing and drug-free workplace programs help to directly address substance abuse issues in a community.
Instant Drug Testing in Rapid City
Instant drug testing is commonly called point of collection testing or on-site testing. This type of test gives negative results the same day as the test; the actual testing is conducted at the facility where you give the specimen. There is a great advantage with onsite instant testing as you get a negative result the same day as you provide the specimen for testing. Pre-employment drug testing, court-ordered drug testing, drug tests for probation, child custody cases, random drug testing, and testing teenagers are all situations in which point of collection could be beneficial.

DOT Required Random Drug and Alcohol Testing in Rapid City, South Dakota
For owner-operators two important steps must be taken to comply with the DOT FMCSA regulations for drug and alcohol testing:
- A pre-Employment test drug test with a negative result must be completed before operating a DOT covered commercial motor vehicle (CMV).
- You must enroll in a random testing consortium. Owner-operators are not permitted to manage random testing themselves.
US Drug Test Centers can assist owner operators in all areas of the United States, for immediate compliance with DOT FMCSA regulations for drug and alcohol testing, call US Drug Test Centers today at 866-566-0261.
Both stand-alone random testing pools and consortium random testing pools are available for trucking companies, bus companies, for hire carriers and private fleets. Typically companies with over 20 drivers will elect to have a stand-alone random drug testing program. Compliance is more complicated for companies with more than one driver. US Drug Test Centers can simplify the process and help your company with a program that keeps you in compliance and out of trouble with the DOT so that you avoid fines and penalties.
Rapid City's Most Accurate Drug or Alcohol Testing
